Turkish coffee

Turkish coffee is strong coffee done from powder like coffee grinds boiled in a small copper pot.

Turkish coffee has strong and velvety flavor due to coffee fat dissolved into the drink because it is unfiltered and prepared with powder-like grind size. Turkish coffee is also called cezve or ibrik coffee.

Preparation of Turkish coffee is done by placing coffee and water into a coffee pot. The pot if heated up without stirring. If sweetening is wanted sugar can be added. When grounds have sunk to the bottom of the pot coffee is stirred. When crema appears on top of the coffee it should be poured into cups. Then the pot is returned to the heat source and stirred until color of the coffee changes to copper brown. Turkish coffee is a great companion for small sweet treats. Traditionally coffee grounds settled on the bottom of a cup can be used to predict the future.
